A gory, entertaining spoof
26 September 1998 | by See all my reviews

In the early seventies, when I saw this film, the depiction of violence on the screen was a hot media topic. Therefore the opening of this short feature took most of us in; an academic type, filmed against the background of his study, addresses the screen on the title subject. Just as we have settled down to the tedious tempo, - BANG! The study door bursts open, and a shotgun toting intruder blasts part of the speaker's head away, hurling him backwards out of his chair. It would spoil the fun if I described the rest of the increasingly blood-soaked proceedings; suffice it to say that the joke works wonderfully.
